Outline

The i-wool is wool made in Iwate. This project is an effort on making a system of creating local business and circulating communities with a focus on Iwate wool. Unavoidably abandoned Iwate wool can be used for traditional crafts of Iwate, woolen textiles and homespun. And it generates a cycle of jobs in local communities and promotes sustainable locally produced wool for local consumption.
